You place redstone dust( a.k.a redstone) on the ground, and place a power source, such as a lever, buton, or redstone torch on one end of the soon-to-be circuit. Then you place a mechanism, door, piston,etc. on the other end, and when the redstone is powered(it will be glowing), then the mechanism will perform its task, such as doors will open and pistons will push outwards.

Redstone is commonly used for many different setups. Here is an example of using redstone for an automatic door: First, you place your door in a desired place, after that you put a piece of redstone down next to the door, lastly, you make a wooden pressure plate and put it on the other side of the piece of redstone. There you have it, an automatic door. There are endless possibilities to making things with redstone. I would recommend a redstone Wikipedia.
